To quote Chrissie Hynde of the pretenders: Some things change. Some stay the same. After 10 years, I am back at Fairchild Publications. In the early days, I shared a cubicle with fellow beauty reporter Jenny B. Fine. Now, she is editor of WWD Beauty Biz, not to mention a new mom—to Philippa Blossom Locke, who was born on April 20th. Since August 2005, after six years as beauty director of In Style magazine, I have been running my own branding consultancy, KVD NYC Inc. In addition to advising my fashion and beauty clients, I am filling in for Jenny this summer while she is on maternity leave. Once again, we are sharing a cubicle.
